One of the best in Stow

Good food and reasonable price. Good selection (particularly seafood). The owners previously ran the excellent Fox restaurant (which I have not tried since they left). Reservation is advised.

Welcoming, excellent food, dog friendly, nice staff. So good we went twice. Even very fussy friends liked it.

We visit the UK from Cyprus a couple of times a year, and frequently go to Stow. We have eaten in quite a number of venues in this lovely town, but this time around the menus and 'ambience' of several of them seemed to have changed for the worse. We were attracted to the Old Butchers by the fresh crab,... More

We choose to eat here due to the expansive menu and the positive reviews. All started well Oysters and starters were good, we then had around 45 minute wait for our main course, even for freshly cooked this is too long in my view. The restaurant was busy, but there should still have been some communication to say there would... More

We booked for Saturday night dinner while staying at Stow for the weekend and we weren't disappointed. The service was faultless, the food delicious and well-presented. In fact there were so many tempting dishes on the menu it was difficult to decide what to choose! Well-run establishment with an eye for detail, we'll definitely be back when we come again... More

My boyfriend and I had an amazing meal here on May bank holiday. The food was delicious (we had steak and lobster) and our waitress was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Me and my partner were camping near Stow on the Wold and had found this restaurant in our Lonely Planet guide, we decided to have lunch there. The restaurant interior is unique and we had a nice table by the window. There is a terrace out the front which would be lovely on a warm, sunny day. The waitresses were... More

My husband and I had dinner at the Old Butchers following recommendation from our B&B in Broadway and we were not disappointed. My husband had the burger which was excellent and I had the calves liver and bacon which came with mash and cabbage. Both of us were very happy with or choice of dishes and would definitely recommend them!... More

When I first ate at the old butchers it had an exciting menu a fantastic buzzing vibe and I thought it was a real game changer on my return visit on a thursday evening it seemed a little wooden and the menu was written to tick boxes rather than inspire any excitement i hope it was just an off day...
